Tallahassee, FL---Jimbo Fisher and his players are getting set for another conference game, and a visit from Duke Saturday afternoon.

The Seminoles coming off the comeback win over Miami, FSU swarming the 'canes after falling behind ten zip.

That giving Florida State a big confidence boost, even in the wake of losing Chris Thompson for the season.

That said, the 'noles say they aren't about to take Duke for granted, the Blue Devils coming in 6-2 and 3-1 in ACC play.

"I'm not surprised," says FSU quarterback EJ Manuel "those guys have had a good coach in coach Cutcliffe for a couple of years now and I'm sure he's gotten a better recruiting class and things like that. They look a lot more athletic now, they don't look like the Duke of old so we're gonna have to be prepared for these guys. And it's gonna be a big game, just like it was last week."

The oddsmakers still expect FSU to treat them like the Duke of old, Seminoles favored by four touchdowns. That game set for 3:30 eastern.
